Disney's new Dumbo trailer teases 'mystique' and 'magic'

'Dumbo' Trailer: Tim Burton's Live-Action Remake Soars

Continuing Disney's live-action trip down remake lane, Tim Burton's adaptation of Dumbo continues to barrel its way towards cinemas.

Disney live-action remakes of their animated classics: Collect them all!

While the phrase "Tim Burton's Dumbo" inspires a general 2000s to 2010s-esque fatigue, the promise of a stoic Colin Farrell having his long-frozen heart melted by a tiny, flying elephant is a premise that makes me feel very seen.

The new Dumbo trailer sets up the premise with which everyone is familiar - a circus elephant is separated from her baby, Dumbo, and the two must work to find a way to reunite - then tugs at heartstrings by teasing a host of new characters and some big struggles for the titular big-eared elephant.

Chelsea insist they have not broken Federation Internationale de Football Association rules on underage transfers
It is alleged that Traore played 25 matches for Chelsea at under-16 and under-18 level without being registered by the FA. It is unclear whether or not the cases against Chelsea or the other four Premier League clubs are close to completion.

Dumbo is directed by Tim Burton, who previously made Edward Scissorhands, Big Fish, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and 1989's Batman.

"Dumbo" stars Colin Farrell, Michael Keaton, Danny DeVito, Eva Green, Nico Parker and Finley Hobbins. As Dumbo becomes a soaring sensation at the circus, he attracts the attention of V.A. Vandevere (Keaton), the owner of a successful attraction called Dreamland. Dumbo soars to new heights alongside a charming and spectacular aerial artist, Colette Marchant (Eva Green), until Holt learns that beneath its shiny veneer, Dreamland is full of dark secrets. Not so much? Are you a Dumbo purist?

It remains to be seen how numerous original film's iconic songs will make it into the new version (and, for that matter, whether the reasonably racist crows get a dusting off). Eventually, they discover that Dumbo can fly, and this helps the circus make a comeback, except things don't go to plan when Vandevere gets involved.
